DNA Sample for Felony Charges, Arapahoe County Defense Lawyer

DNA-Sample.jpgExpungement of Your DNA Sample in Jefferson County, Colorado, When Not Guilty or Case Dismissed

Colorado continues to go overboard when a person is charged with a felony crime. Note that I said "charged" with a crime - not "convicted" of a felony. So much for Colorado lawmakers believing a person is innocent until proven guilty. Now, everyone charged with a felony in Jefferson County and across Colorado must submit to the taking of a biological DNA sample. Then, your DNA is put into a huge database to search in the event future crimes are committed by anyone. Read more on lawyers and DNA Expungment and Sealing.

Colorado DNA Re-Test Exonerates Innocent Man

Denver Criminal Defense Attorney: DNA Tests

The Justice Review Project, newly created by the Colorado Attorney General's Office, exonerated a Colorado man convicted and sentenced to life in 1996 for a Sexual Assault and Murder he did not commit. As the public has been made aware of the inaccuracies of DNA testing in its infancy, prosecutors all over the country have begun re-testing DNA used in older cases. The wrongfully accused man was living in the town of Palisade (Mesa County), near the victim at the time. The man now accused of committing the crime is already serving a life sentence for the rape and murder of a Fort Collins woman.

DNA Evidence of the Innocent in Colorado

DNA evidence of the innocent in Colorado is now the law. Before a person is convicted, C.R.S. 16-23-103 now requires anyone charged with a felony - before any conviction, to give the government a sample of their DNA.  Of course, the sample will go into a huge database and can be searched by the government for profiling or to match prior cases.
